Carlow Garden Trail, South East Ireland
OPEN all year round, the Carlow Garden Trail currently features 21 different gardening attractions with an additional three gardens in the surrounding counties of Kildare and Wexford. The trail includes great old gardens that have been lovingly restored and maintained throughout the years, and smaller gardens which are maturing beautifully with time.
Award winning garden centres and forest parks complement the joy of a visit here. The Carlow Garden Trail ranges from small to very large gardens, garden centres and forest parks and from old to new, so there is something to stimulate both the novice and experienced gardener. Known for its mild and temperate climate, County Carlow in Ireland’s sunny South East is the ideal destination for your gardening trip.
